Hurricane Florence
September 11, 2018

SCWARN Members,

As you know, Hurricane Florence will be impacting the South Carolina coast in the next few days. To what extent is still unknown, but we all must prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Do not forget that SCWARN is here for any resource request that you may have. Do not hesitate to reach out. Help is here and very willing to do whatever it takes to support our brothers and sisters in the water sector.

Short briefing -
A life-threatening storm surge is likely along portions of the coastlines of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, and a Storm Surge Watch has been issued for a portion of this area.
All interests from South Carolina into the mid-Atlantic region should ensure they have their hurricane plan in place and follow any advice given by local officials.

2. Life-threatening freshwater flooding is likely from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event, which may extend inland over the Carolinas and Mid Atlantic for hundreds of miles as Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland.

3. Damaging hurricane-force winds are likely along portions of the coasts of South Carolina and North Carolina, and a Hurricane Watch has been issued for a part of this area. Damaging winds could also spread well inland into portions of the Carolinas and Virginia.

4. Large swells affecting Bermuda and portions of the U.S. East Coast will continue this week, resulting in life-threatening surf and rip currents.

Everyone stay SAFE!
